Is it possible at all to ask for profile images when doing video searches so that more than just the username can be posted next the the video? Or even some version of "batch" where multiple profile images can be queried at once?

Not really an easy way of doing a batch request for an arbitrary set of user profiles.

I would just render the page and have JavaScript retrieve the thumbnails dynamically by querying the user entry e.g.:

http://picasaweb.google.com/data/entry/api/user/test.jfisher

You probably want JSON-in-script though e.g.:

http://picasaweb.google.com/data/entry/api/user/test.jfisher?alt=json-in-script&callback=handleProfileResponse

Would be pretty easy to knock out with jQuery, just remember to set the callback to "?" in that case.
